Music Ministries

We are hoping that many of you will consider joining one of our choirs and/or instrumental groups. There are always places in our choirs and we encourage participation for your own enjoyment and fellowship as well as to sing or play for the glory of God.

If you have any questions about any music opportunities,
please call Barbara Estelle, Director of Music, at (732) 458-2080.

Why not make this a “singing/playing” year for the glory of our Lord?
